Over on the Acorio blog, Meghan Lockwood published a list of 27 ServiceNow professionals to follow. All of the present and former developer advocates of this program were on that list: myself, Andrew Barnes and Josh Nerius. It is a great honor to be included in this list. Speaking for all three of us it is a proud moment for everyone. Thank you Meghan! If you are looking for information and inspiration related to the Now Platform, that list is a very good one to follow on social media.

As we continue forward iterating on the ServiceNow platform, we always want to make our tools better and your experience as a developer better. As we plan future releases, we want to know what your pain points are so we can make them better. Specifically, Andrew and myself are looking for feedback on the developer experience. Is there something you would like to see changed in Studio or the Script Debugger or the ATF?

2018 This has been an exciting year at ServiceNow and the Developer Program. We wanted to take a moment to thank all our readers that come visit the blog. From Andrew Joining ServiceNow this year and working with Dave Slusher has been a pleasure and I am looking forward to next year.

Joining Developer Program Greetings this is Andrew Barnes! The developer advocacy arm of the developer program has helped grow and empower the ServiceNow developer community. Dave Slusher and formerly Josh Nerius have done an amazing job with this program. The developer community would not be the same without them and their efforts. A short while ago I joined ServiceNow and specifically the developer advocate team. I have been developing on the ServiceNow platform since being inspired at Knowledge 14.

For the last two years, the developer advocacy portion has been brought to you predominantly by two people - myself and Josh Nerius (aka @NeriusNow.) Josh recently took on a new role within the company and transitioned to new responsibilities. Much of what was good about the program over this time originated with Josh. He’s the one who posted much of our content about Flow Designer and OAuth. GitHub Companion and our ability to (psuedo) accept pull requests for ServiceNow development was one of his brainstorms.

Welcome to our new blog! The paint is still wet and there may be construction dust in odd places so if you find some let me know. We will discuss in the coming weeks and months a little about how we built it using a combination of ServiceNow infrastructure and the Hugo static site generator. Some functionality does not yet exist, such as commenting and liking that existed on the previous Community-site-hosted blog.

In case you were not aware, there is a collection of Technical Best Practices that are published on the Developer Portal. This material is also available via navigation under the Learn > Documentation header in the top navigation. This is important information that needs to have a good home where it is accessible by developers at any time. We often have sessions covering this material at Knowledge (I co-presented on in 2014, for example) but it can be difficult to know where to access it on a daily basis.

Last week at Slack Frontiers, a big announcement was made about a new partnership between Slack and ServiceNow. Allan Leinwand (our CTO) joined April Underwood of Slack to discuss and demonstrate the upcoming prebuilt integration between the two services to be released in Kingston. The video is here and the ServiceNow announcement begins around 14:30. Allan also has a blog post discussing the partnership. If you watch the video and/or read the announcement, you might be wondering exactly what this means for ServiceNow developers.
